Children should be limited to amount of time they spend online. Patsy Kane, executive head teacher at the Education and Leadership Trust
inManchester, said Mr Gibb’s plan was “missing the point on just how fantastically useful mobile phones canbe for learning”.
She told BBC Breakfast her multi-academy trust encourages the responsible use of smartphones duringlessons and that teachers do remove the devices if they are used inappropriately during school time.
Mr Gibb also said that it was not wrong for kids to use their phones but when the time they online begins to exceed the normal they should be drawn back to the “physical world”. It eats into the amount of sleep and rest children have, resulting in their coming into school the next day tired and unable to concentrate.
